Rebecca planned her June wedding to Chris for the anniversary of the day that they began their relationship.
Signing their marriage license:
I love the way he looks at her!
Such a gorgeous bride!
This is one of my favorite images. Rebecca and Chris had a backyard wedding at their home in Ahwatukee, but Rebecca planned for Becky and me to get photos under this gorgeous tree. This tree is really something else. It must be really old and has all these swirling branches that go all over the place, down to the ground and back up again. And lots of wildlife lived around this tree--I saw rabbits, adorable ground squirrels and birds. I love trees so much and living here in the desert in Arizona, big old trees are not so easy to find, so I was so excited by Rebecca's discovery of this tree and that she wanted to come here and get photos right after the ceremony.
(Note to brides and grooms: Know of a cool place you would love to get photos of the two of you? Even if it's not at the location of your ceremony or reception, make time for it on your wedding day and we would love to photograph you there. And we are always happy to do day-after-the-wedding shoots too! )
Becky got this image while I was photographing them on the other side of this amazing tree. I love Becky's perspective here, the tree seems so monumental and I always love images with the sun pouring in.
Thank you Rebecca and Chris for having Becky and me be your photographers on your wedding day. What I think I will remember most is when I first met you guys to talk about your photography. Walking around that beautiful ancient tree and learning about your lives was truly fun. I'm always a little nervous to meet people at first, but you guys put me at ease in telling me about how you met and what you liked and loved and did together and just about your lives. It was fun to hear about your sweet, smart dog and then to actually get to see her on your wedding day! I wish you guys the absolute best in your life together!
